About Acqua E Farina

As you head northwest up the hill through Bukit Timah, the landscape gets progressively greener. And, though you might think otherwise, the range of restaurant options doesn’t get thinner on the ground. Just before you hit the Rail Mall on Upper Bukit Timah Road is an Italian restaurant that has the rare privilege of being helmed by two chefs, each with a respective northern and southern Italian specialty. It’s thanks to this that Acqua E Farina – water and flour, the basic ingredients – can offer Singapore diners a comprehensive, balanced Italian restaurant experience. Reserve a table today!

More about Acqua E Farina, Singapore

Water and flour – Acqua E Farina – are the foundational ingredients in the triumvirate of Italian staple foods: breads, pasta and pizza. Here at this rather special Upper Bukit Timah Road restaurant, the flavours of both northern and southern Italian cuisine make onto and into all three typical dishes. Chef Antonio Manetto hails from a small town near Naples in sunny southern Italy, and swears by the house signature red Neapolitan pizza topped with spicy salami, creamy ricotta and a scattering of baby spinach. The seductive white pizza tartufo, loaded with mascarpone, mozzarella, mushrooms and truffle, is also popular among Singapore’s Italian food fans.

Taking a culinary journey to the north of Italy means you’re moving onto chef Roberto Galbiati’s turf. A proud native of northern Milan, his spaghetti al nero di seppia is a typical Northern-style seafood pasta whose hearty flavours balance earthiness and the freshness of the ocean. This is what’s so special about this Bukit Timah restaurant – in a city like Singapore that seems to boast a good number of Italian restaurants per capita, it’s a delight to find an example where the chefs put their names and their reputation, not to mention their gastronomic heritage, behind each and every dish. Acqua E Farina comes highly recommended!

If you haven't eaten here, you haven't lived. Highly recommended are the squid ink pasta(special order only), mushroom risotto, meat stuffed ravioli and the Tiramisu. Just try everything.

Food was good and service was good. We could order split pizza (2 flavours on one) so it was great. Ordered Tonnato as appetitizer and it was quite refreshing.

Great food again. Tried different menu from my previous visits but they were all satisfying. It appears there will be no regrets to choose any dishes.

The atmosphere was relaxing, and I noticed all the empty tables were reserved (with name) as I stepped in so I was glad I made a reservation. My family of 4 tried the 4-cheeses pizza and another with mushrooms and both were delicious. The crust was thin, not too hard nor dry. Between the 2 pastas we ordered. I do find the portion of the squid ink pasta to be visually smaller than the one with eggplant and cheese but maybe it was due to the difference in pasta shape. Nevertheless, the sauce was flavourful and crabmeat was freshly sweet. For desserts, we shared a tiramisu and a platter of 4 mini desserts. They were not overly sweet. Servers were polite and we had a pleasant experience.

This place had the best Italian food I've ever tried. Ordered the vongole and pizza - the clams in the pasta were so fresh and juicy, oozing with sweetness in every bite and you could just taste that the tomato base in the pizza was made from fresh tomatoes and not the usual paste that you'd find in most restaurants around this price range. Plus the cosy setting and very attentive service is a bonus

Very nice and authentic Italian experience! Excellent price/quality balance, friendly and efficient staff/service and good to great tastes on our plates. Just one dish was slightly disappointing: the risotto with saffran and sausage. Too much gravy, not enough saffran for my palate. The antipasti were all excellent, no complaints whatsoever. We’ll be back! Grazie.

Cosy and homely ambience. Excellent service from the very personable and attentive team. Delicious food—the Octopus pasta, Seabass and Pannetone in the Christmas menu were special. The burrata never fails to please. Overall an enjoyable dining experience for our party of four.

I love dining at this authentic Italian restaurant. The menu variety, quality of food, friendly and attentive service, and cosy ambience make it an easy choice. I'm also a big fan of the location, tucked away at The Rail Mall.
